Food and drink in restaurants in Gran Canaria can be all kinds of things. You'll find everything from gourmet restaurants and local goodies, to British fish & chips places. Will try to mention some of the best ones on the island..
We begin in Las Palmas with the best steak restaurant on the island, El Novillo Precoz in C/ Portugal no. 9. It's not that often you pay over 30 euros for a steak on the Canary Islands, but if the price makes you curious, you should by all means take a trip to check it out.
Another very good restaurant on the north side of the island is Restaurante Casa Martell. This is located in El Madroñal, just between the village of San Mateo and Santa Brigida. It was a hundred years ago a grocery store, which was converted into a restaurant. Here you will find superb traditional Canarian cuisine.
Further south of Gran Canaria, we find Bamira in Playa del Aquila at San Agustin. A couple from Austria serves Asia and Africa inspired cuisine, depending on where they have traveled in the summer and what fresh ingredients the island have produced.
Anno Domini is a French restaurant in the shopping center in San Agustin. Giant shrimp a la Provencale and sole in champagne sauce are some of the specialties here. A properly Feinschmecker restaurant of high class.
In San Fernando, we find perhaps the best fish restaurant on the island, Restaurante Casa Gallega Compostela. Here they get fresh fish from Galicia flown in daily. A paradise for fish lovers.
For those who like lamb, Las Cumbres Mesón del Cordero in Playa del Ingles is a must. This restaurant is said to be the best restaurant with lamb and is known throughout the island.
La Aquarela in Patalavaca at Anfi del Mar is another restaurant in the gourmet class. This eating place is frequently visited by Norwegians who both live permanently on the island and those on vacation in Gran Canaria.
This is just a small selection of nice places to eat, but all these restaurants are top quality and keeping absolute the highest quality in food and experiences. Enjoy!
